Sustainable sourcing

in all our supply chains of raw materials

Better sourcing

AAK is committed to sustainable sourcing, and we are well aware of the important role we play in the food value chain. Through Better Sourcing, we engage to transform and go the extra mile to implement continuous improvement programs.

We constantly engage with our suppliers to ensure that progress is made and that raw materials are produced in a sustainable way, protecting biodiversity and ecosystems and reducing our environmental impact, while safeguarding human rights and people’s livelihoods.

Together, we are Making Better Happen.
